Black Panther Star Reveals How Shuri Would React to Tony Stark

Black Panther Star Reveals How Shuri Would React to Tony Stark
We know that Letitia Wright's Shuri character from Black Panther is going to show up in Infinity War, but how would she interact with Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark? Are they going to nerd out or get jealous of each other? Will they meet up at all? We still don't know how this will all play out in May when the movie is released, but Wright has revealed how she thinks it might go down in Infinity War. Letitia Wright's Shuri was just recently introduced to Marvel Cinematic Universe fans last weekend, learning that she may even be more brilliant than Tony Stark and Bruce Banner combined.

In a new interview, Letitia Wright was asked how Shuri might interact with Tony Stark and Bruce Banner if she were to ever meet them. Wright was careful not to give anything about Infinity War away, but she did have an

Disney’s Live-Action Pinocchio Movie Lands Paddington Director

Disney’s live-action Pinocchio remake has nabbed Paddington director Paul King, with an eye toward starting production this fall. Skyfall director Sam Mendes originally signed on to direct Pinocchio but bailed on the project last year. Another live-action Pinocchio project was previously reported to be gearing up at Warner Bros. That version reportedly nabbed Ron Howard to direct with Robert Downey Jr. starring as Geppetto. But the project appears to have stalled out as there have been no updates in two years.

Team Downey to produce A Head Full of Ghosts adaptation

Deadline is reporting that Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey’s Team Downey is set to produce a feature film adaptation of Paul Tremblay’s thriller novel A Head Full of Ghosts, which will be written and directed by Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House).

A Head Full of Ghosts follows Merry, “who 20 years after her family was publicly consumed and destroyed by her teenage sister’s mysterious and horrific affliction, is approached by a journalist to tell the story in her own words. She reveals a far more terrifying version of what really happened in her childhood home.”

Focus Features is producing the movie, with Perkins set to rewrite a script originally penned by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowsky.

The post Team Downey to produce A Head Full of Ghosts adaptation appeared first on Flickering Myth.

New Concept Art Places Shuri In The Black Panther Suit

If T’Challa is king and protector of Wakanda, then his little sister Shuri is very much the brains behind the operation.

Black Panther‘s breakout star, as played by Letitia Wright, has undoubtedly become the new genius of Marvel’s interwoven franchise – smarter than even Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) or Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). Couple this with Wright’s immense performance and it’s small wonder why fans are currently crying out for a full-blown Shuri spinoff.

She’s already locked in for Avengers: Infinity War, mind you, and thanks to Marvel’s Black Panther: The Art of the Movie, we now have some never-before-seen concept art that places Shuri in the famous, Vibranium-infused suit.

Could we ever see a Marvel vs DC movie?

George Chrysostomou on whether we could ever get to a Marvel vs DC movie…

It is often thought that a Marvel vs. DC film is a long shot, with very little probability of becoming made. Many point to studio executives and/or legal issues as the main reasons as to why there is no chance that this type of huge blockbuster could ever be made. There is however more to it than simply a legal battle. A number of different elements would have to line up in order to achieve a movie of this scale. Of course there is precedent within comics for a crossover like this, and some cinematic examples of character crossovers from one franchise to another.

This article will attempt to break down the elements that must be considered if there is to ever be a Marvel vs. DC movie. We know where we’re currently at with these cinematic landscapes,

Black Panther's Secret Ingredient? 6 Women You'd Want in Your Squad

Author Jacqueline Coley is a correspondent for Rotten Tomatoes. When Ryan Coogler was tapped to write and direct Black Panther, he enlisted an army of talented women to help him bring Marvel's first Black superhero to the big screen. Both in front of and behind the camera, women help build the framework for the most talked about film of 2018. Onscreen, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, and scene-stealing newcomer Letitia Wright accompany King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as he battles to protect Wakanda from Black Panther's militant villain Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Behind the camera, Rachel Morrison, Ruth Carter, and Hannah Bealcher brought prestige and innovation to the cinematography, costuming, and production design, respectively. These are fiercely talented queens of cinema, and women have never been more prominent in a Marvel Superhero film. It might be a coincidence that the strength of women on screen mirrors the force of

10 Crazy Similarities Between Black Panther And Iron Man

Black Panther and Iron Man are two of the most popular superheroes in the Marvel universe – in fact, they’re two of the most popular heroes in comic books and fiction in general. The two men (who are otherwise known as T’Challa and Tony Stark) are genuinely iconic characters who, in the last few years, have both transcended their comic book roots to become two of Hollywood’s most recognisable stars as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (thanks to Chadwick Boseman and Robert Downey Jr. respectively). On the surface, the two men seem like very different people from very different backgrounds – but they’ve actually got a lot more in common than you might think. In this video, we’re going to look deeper into that very notion. The things the two characters have in common are; they were both created by some of Marvel’s biggest creator figures back in the 1960s,

Avengers: Infinity War Figures Offer New Looks At Captain America, Iron Man And Others

Now that we’re somewhat within reaching distance of Avengers: Infinity War‘s theatrical release, it’s only natural that various forms of merchandise begin flooding the marketplace. Already, we’ve gotten looks at T-shirts, backpacks and the like, and, now, comes what diehards geeks may very well look forward to most.

We are, of course, talking about action figures.

Personally, this is a form of memorabilia that I really dig because you’re essentially owning a small replica of that character. Granted, some of you may be able to shell out the cash required for those premium toys, and while those are pretty awesome, most folks probably explore this less expensive avenue.

Another new piece of promo poster art for Avengers: Infinity War has surfaced and it brings the whole heroic team together. Of course, the big bad Mad Titan, Thanos, makes an appearance as well. Like Tony Stark said in the recent Super Bowl spot, "It's all been leading to this," and the fans can't wait to see how this whole thing plays out! We all know that Thanos is going to be the greatest villain that the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy have faced off against since and we all know that things aren't going to end with sunshine and rainbows. I just can't wait to see all of these heroes team up with each other! That's going to bring such a fun dynamic to the character's story arcs in the film.

New Report Says WB Is Disappointed In Ben Affleck

It’s fair to say that Ben Affleck’s tenure as Batman has not gone how he expected it to so far. From the initial backlash against his casting to the triple critical takedown of all three DC films he’s been involved in – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League – it’s no secret that Affleck isn’t happy with the situation. In fact, rumours abound that he’ll soon up and leave the franchise, with WB having no choice but to recast the all-important role of the Dark Knight.

The whole thing has surely caused some bad blood between the two parties and now, Revenge of the Fans is claiming that their sources are telling them that Warner Bros. is disappointed that Ben Affleck has failed to become the “face of the franchise.” Apparently, the issue is with the fact that “he didn’t Rdj this thing.
